Scott Pruitt’s staff at EPA worried about exposure to formaldehyde — but only for their boss

Employees at the Environmental Protection Agency were so worried that a fancy desk that their former boss Scott Pruitt had ordered for his office might contain high levels of a known carcinogen that they arranged to set it up in a warehouse and let it air out for a week.

The problem is that the same officials later blocked the release of a draft report prepared before President Donald Trump took office on the dangers of exposure to the same substance, formaldehyde, to the general public. That report showed that it can cause diseases including leukemia and nose and throat cancer, and that many Americans are regularly exposed to it, according to government watchdog American Oversight.
